Mike Caro: Today's Word is... PUMPKIN

Poker Player Newspaper - May 20, 2014 - 9:59am

Today, I’m going to save poker players worldwide from turning into pumpkins. Cinderella’s carriage could turn into a pumpkin at midnight, right?

Your poker carriage can do the same thing. Even you, yourself, do it, too — turn into a pumpkin. Maybe it doesn’t happen exactly at midnight, but it happens. So, let’s talk about how to avoid becoming a poker pumpkin and how to profit from your pumpkin opponents. Sound strange? Good. Let’s get started.

The premise

Here’s the premise, and you tell me if this seems right to you. To play poker successfully, you need a vehicle for transporting you and your advanced poker arsenal to a game. Call it a carriage. Yeah, that’s a stretch, but so what? If you don’t have all your tactics, attitudes, and ammunition (meaning bankroll) packaged sensibly, you aren’t likely to win this year.

That’s you ride, your carriage — all your skill, money, and state of mind. And you roll proudly into a game. That’s you or your carriage or both, depending on how you perceive yourself. And you’ve arrived at the poker table, ready to do battle and win.

But here are the things that will turn you and your carriage into a pumpkin.

Poker Player Newspaper Takes Forward Step

Poker Player Newspaper - May 19, 2014 - 3:09pm

by Wendeen H. Eolis

Last week, Stanley Sludikoff, publisher of Poker Player Newspaper, addressed card room personnel in an open letter saying, “For the past 30 years PPN has faithfully served card rooms across the country with a print edition available every two weeks." He continued, "Costs to provide this service have escalated past a point of feasibility in our current business model."  He announced, "Accordingly, effective immediately, we will be publishing Poker Player Newspaper exclusively on the Internet at pokerplayernewspaper.com."

It was a painful step but also a potential winner for the MENSA man and member of the Seniors Poker Hall of Fame. Make no mistake, about it—at 78 Sludikoff is still going strong, fearlessly and immensely confident about Poker Player Newspaper’s future.

A businessman and one time blackjack enthusiast, Sludikoff published diverse gambling books for decades. Among them are a collection of stories by Doyle Brunson “According to Doyle,” the ultimate “Book of Tells” by Mike Caro, and the pre-eminent work of gaming law professor I. Nelson Rose, “Gambling and the Law.” Sludikoff  also brought blackjack expert Ken Uston’s tale of "Million Dollar Blackjack" to the public. A library of sixty five books have been published as part of his Gambling Times business.

California Poker Adventure: Part 7

Poker Player Newspaper - May 16, 2014 - 9:21am

by Ashley Adams

My poker-playing buddy Andrei and I were nearing the final quadrant of this circular poker playing tour we had been on for five days.  We had flown from Boston to San Francisco on a Saturday, driven east and north to Chico, then south through Sacramento, Stockton, and the Napa Valley, before heading west through Livermore and Tracy to San Jose.  We played poker all the way, in about 23 rooms.

Once in San Jose, our first port of call there was the Bay 101 Casino.  It is a huge, modern, grand poker palace – along the lines of the Commerce in Los Angeles.  The room is divided into two halves, with a large lobby and enormously high ceilings.   On the left are a myriad of “California Games” like baccarat, blackjack, pai gow tiles, and 3-card poker.  I watched these games briefly – but moved quickly over to the poker side.
